Research has shown that when flu shot vaccination is combined with an offer of FIT testing for colorectal cancer screening, rates for both increase. In this session Dr. Michael Potter, developer of the FluFIT Program, will review the research behind FluFIT and describe how to create an effective FluFIT program in a variety of settings.
- Identify the importance of FIT testing as an option for colon cancer screening and the components of an effective FIT screening program.
- Discuss how colon cancer screening with FIT test aligns with Flu shot vaccination in a clinical setting and leads to positive outcomes for increasing rates of both.
- Identify the components of a successful and sustainable FluFIT program, as well as the tools and resources to develop a program in a clinic or pharmacy setting.
